My Students

I am a Pre-Kindergarten teacher in an inner-city public school district. My students are 4 and 5 years old. Most of the students come from single-parent homes. Unfortunately, many of the parents are unemployed, incarcerated or deceased. Many are being raised by grandparents or other relatives.

My Preschool students are eager to learn, but most of them are living in poverty.

They don't have access to books or educational materials because education is not emphasized or stressed and quite frankly, it is not seen as a priority.

My Project

Pre-K students come to school with open minds-anxious and eager to learn. It is necessary to have educational materials that both entertain and educate. In today's society, I have to compete with video games and cartoons.

The Fairy Tales STEAM Kit will help teach Reading/Language Arts, Math & Science Concepts while keeping the children engaged in hands-on learning activities.

These concepts are imperative for young children to become lifelong learners. I am also requesting STEM Materials to share with Families during our Parent Meetings and Math & Science Night Programs. The Family Engagement Home Activity Materials will help me instruct families on ways to promote STEM Learning at home...after all, Parents are their children's first teacher!
